And if they do a calibration for say HDMI 2, will I then need them to do the same for HDMI 1? I use both so I need both ports calibrated. It sounds like 90 minutes doesn't leave much time. I heard somebody say a while back it's 4 hours. Do they really just give us 90 minutes? I guess they wouldn't do a 3D mode huh?
I just got in a nasty auto accident last night and my car's totalled. Luckily my girlfriend and I, and the other driver, were all okay other than some aches. Thankfully it shouldn't be our fault so hopefully we will get compensated by the other driver's insurance, but for now I have no car, so this is now my top priority for a bit. I hope I get lucky with a good calibration because then at least the color should look better.

Eagle, best of luck with the incident. Glad no one was injured.

I'm not sure I see it on the ES, that actually might be compression artifact, which I realize has been talked about before, but these D pics are really really weird. Sorry to hear that, man

PRS and Mesa Boogie are a match made in rock/metal heaven. Have a friend that plays a custom shop Carvin. Looks and sounds amazing.

So far - - flawless in 2D and 3D mode. I have AMP set to "Smooth." Many folks recommend "Clear." All I can say is that the picture has been fantastic and with the AMP set to "Smooth" - - even streaming from Amazon Prime is excellent. I believe you will get the same performance with the AMP "Clear" setting.

Rico, you're one of the lucky ones, like Nitra, that work with Smooth. You're going through an AVR, right?

Edit:
Great 3D write up - thanks!

NOW you're talking my language! biggrin.gif
Yeah, Carvin I think is really under appreciated, which is actually great price-wise if you live in the U.S.

Am I the only one that is not as happy with 'The Avengers' 3d bluray. I don't know the right term to describe the issue that on dark scenes there is a mist-like film on screen. I have seen this on other movies such as 'Underworld Awakening' and the opening of 'How to train your dragon". Does anyone know what this is described as?

I can't be sure. Only on the some 3d movies in some dark scenes that are not closeups. I dont know if this is described ghosting as well. The reviews for Avengers 3d bluray are amazing which I agree because as you sit through the action scenes in bright light blow you away and you hardly remember these initial issues.

I haven't watched my copy yet.. Maybe someone that has can chime in. I think a lot of us all bought this blu ray the same day too..

I asked about that too but no one answered. Like the dark scene where Loki is talking about the invasion. The background is blurry and weird looking and it actually hurts your eyes. My whole family commented on it. I don't think that is an issue with the transfer though. It may have even been there in the theater but I don't remember it. It's almost as if when a shot has a blurred background, the conversion process to 3D isn't sure how to handle it. It's extra apparent during dark scenes. And I saw it on How to Train your Dragon too.

Yes. You will know the proble that I am describing if you remember the opening sequence from 'How to train your dragon" that is dark. Even 'Thor' had it in the beginning.

HA!

Anthony, it's hard for me to see an issue with the ES pic but you might have a point if that was taken during a 3D scene - was it?

Garnoch - yes, AMP "Smooth" with everything routed through my Yamaha RX-A2000 receiver, including Bluray player (Sony BDP S790), Directv Receiver and Micca EP350 Digital Media Player.

So far, the "Smooth" setting has worked for me - - especially the Amazon Prime Video movie streaming. The Sony BDP S790 has gotten great reviews and I've been real happy with it - 24 fps. Regular satellite programming is 60fps - which I can confirm via the on screen remote with my Yamaha RX-A2000.

Also - - I'm going to give 3D Bluray Rental a try and cancel my Blockbuster account. With Amazon Prime Movies - - I can rent for little cost or zero - - lots of content. And after looking at all the 3D movies on 3D Bluray Rental - - I'm excited to see how well the service works. Did you get a chance to look at their website and see all the movies currently available AND new releases upcoming - - like Prometheus and Abe Lincoln Vampire Hunter?

I'm hoping the service lives up to the hype. See description below - - finally, a place to get lots of 3D movies with full soundtrack. There are severe limitations on current streaming of 3D movies, full 1080P with full soundtrack. This might solve that problem.

About 3D-BlurayRental.com

Since we've opened our web doors in March 2011, we have delighted our customers with the best quality Blu-ray rentals. We specialize in hard to find Blu-ray rentals in 2D and 3D. If you do not see something you'd like to rent, contact us and we will try and add it to our collection. Click here to see what our customers have been saying. We believe 3D and HD at home is finally at a point where the experience is worth the expense. To experience the best possible 3D movie & HD experience, you will need to get Blu-ray movies displaying a full 1080P picture and audio up to 7.1 HD lossless sound. That is just too much bandwidth for your Cable, Satellite, and other providers. Blu-ray offers, in many instances, more than two times the resolution/pixels and high fidelity not matched by any other format.

We try and stock every current 3D Blu-ray movie and Blu-ray title on the day of release. If you do not see something you'd like to rent, contact us and we will try and add it to our collection.

That's what I thought, and if I remember, everything is then going to the TV at 1080p. Based on some things Nitra has said, I wonder if that's the key to not skipping when in Smooth. Honestly, it doesn't bother me because I would have chosen the most minimal S.O. effect anyway, but I find it interesting.

The BD rentals sound intriguing but I'm not sure I'd get my money's worth.

That was a great film, I saw it in the theatre.

Thanks to everyone for their concern with my accident. Fortunately we're okay and I'm just a bit sore still where the air bag hit me in the chest. Man that smoke smells horrible when it inflates the airbags.
post #5119 of 16125
A few months after getting her license, my daughter got in a accident (last year) and she said the same thing about the smell - and it burned her arm. She luckily seemed fine after but was really sore starting the next day too, so hopefully that's just normal for you. Keep us updated, Eagle and again... good luck.

No we didn't. We already had 1018 before the users here got the new update. Yesterday they launched 1019. This should be the new one.

As much as I like the TV, I've decided that motion control is useless. I had the lights on. I looked washed out in the camera because of the light. And yet, motion control said not enough light. Motion control seems to need more work. Maybe others have had good results but it does not for me.

True. I just realized this happens only on those movies that underwent 2d-3d transfer. The 3d IMAX documentaries dont have this issue. Actually I remember similar issues even in theater while watch the last Harry Potter in 3d. Wonder if Avatar 3d to be released in a week would have this issue.
Thanks

Guys...this TV is DEFINATELY the shiZnet of 3D...I cant say enough about that. It's bright, detailed, sharp and full of depth and thats before tweaking. FO-shizzle! LOL

...seriously, the only negative I have at all is it's inherent flashlight. On 2:35:1 material the effect is more evident especially on dark scenes but NOT at all a buyers-remorse issue for a second.

Frankly the flashlight is the only thing that even catches me at time to time , 2d or 3d, so I am just settling in to some major league viewing pleasure. Movies, documentary, football ...porn...amazing! Wait, did I say porn?...I better NOT let this post populate to FaceBook!

...Anthony, still on my original FW. Not sure when I'll have the energy or inclination to upgrade but will let you know.

I can't speak for others but I had heard motion and voice control weren't worth a cent so I don't bother to use them. I tried motion once for a few seconds for Angry Birds and it was a joke.

That will be a great test. I may buy that now.

That's the only reason I was trying to set it up.
post #5129 of 16125
Same here and had the same issues as you and even when it worked, it was a pain.
post #5130 of 16125
I dedicated time today to the Disney WOW BD while in Movie mode, with my starting point being (mostly) the CNET Movie mode settings, because I feel they work really well for my panel. All heavy curtains were pulled, and the only light seeping into the room was from one light in the kitchen. I did this with Dynamic Contrast, Black Tone and Black Enhancer off, but checking my settings with them on too. After all the settings I had tried before settling on these, I guess I was mainly right. Everything stayed the same except two minor changes. I bumped Contrast from 98 to 100 (CNET was 100). I also used to have Brightness on 46 before changing it to 47 because of adding DC on Low and BT on Dark, but based on the tests, it should be on 47 for me anyway - so I actually didn't change Brightness. To be more exact, I found that for my panel, if I could, Brightness would be between 46 and 47, but with DC and BT on, it should be between 47 and 48. So I decided 47 was a good place to be. Based on the color tests, it's dead on, but I realized more than ever that without equipment to actually measure temperature and everything else, you can only do so much with the disc. I was thrilled with those color settings before though, so the fact that the Disc (and my eye) showed them to be right also, I decided to leave Color, Tint and White Balance as they were. Sharpness I felt could have been anywhere between 15 and 20 so I decided to leave it at 17, which was originally based on Nitra's 16 and then by eye. In other words, I wasted $20. haha
I'll update my settings post.
I'll do a quick run though on Standard tomorrow but I don't use it.
